Here is your assignment, if you choose to play along (cue the Mission: Impossible! music):
(1) What elementary school memories do you have? Share some of them: pick a year, or discuss the whole experience. Was this one of the best times in your life? Or not?
(2) Tell us about your elementary school memories and the highlights of that time of your life in your own blog post, in a comment to this blog post, or on Facebook. Be sure to leave a comment with a link to your blog post on this post.
When I read the title "Elementary School Memories", one specific memory immediately came to mind. When I was in the first grade, at Rorimer Elementary School in La Puente, California, in my class was a girl named Charlene who had not yet fully mastered the art of potty training. She occasionally still had accidents at school. Children being the cruel little brats that they are (and trust me, "brats" was not the first word that came to mind), almost everyone in the class picked on her and ostracized her. I recall that I was the only student who still talked to her — and that the little brats then ostracized me also.
Amazing how some things you never forget. On the positive side, I remember her name, not the names of any of the brats.
